We stock several buffers and it is down to personal preference which one you prefer to use.
We have 2 different buffing files, these are excellent to use in the salon and make a brilliant retail item.
3-way Buffing File – this is about the size of a cushion file with 3 grades of abrasion
A 3-way Jumbo Buffing file – again has 3 grades of abrasion, however the file is wider for ease of holding.
Or a chamois buffer with handle
How to get the best results from a buffing file:
• Use the roughest grade to smooth out any rough edges, scratches on the nails and the worst longitudinal ridges. It is important to buff in one direction, a sawing motion can be uncomfortable and cause bruising.
• Next use the middle grade, use a slight pressure, to start the buffing and begin shining the nails.
• Finish with the finest graded side to achieve a high gloss finish.
• To main the high gloss finish just go over the nails every couple of days, then as the nail grows repeat the whole process every 3 or 4 weeks as necessary.
How to get the best result with a chamois buffer.
This is a professional buffer with a handle, for best results this buffer should be used with a buffing paste.
Again it is always best to buff in one direction and not use a sawing motion as this will cause discomfort, damage and bruising to the nails.
Wipe off any excess buffing paste with cotton wool to reveal your buffed nails.
This can be repeated without paste to maintain the gloss every couple of days and then every 3-4 weeks as necessary with the buffing paste.
